Why No Command on Android Appears

Before we delve into clearing the no command on your android, it is essential to know why exactly the error shows up. Android no command screen appears mostly due to inappropriate resetting of your android device.

Another reason why you may encounter this error is if there is an issue with an application on your device. An interruption to the installation of the app store will cause this error to pop-up.

It also happens if the phone denies access to a superuser. Lastly, the no command problem appears when there is a glitch when installing or updating your android operating system.

Try Different Key Combinations to Access the Recovery Mode

The very first thing to do when you encounter this problem is to try different combinations on your phone that can redirect you to the recovery mode. Here are some of those combinations.

  • Hold the Power +Volume Up buttons.
  • Press and hold Power +Home +Volume Up buttons
  •  Press and hold Power +Volume Down buttons
  • Press and hold Power +Home+ Volume Downbuttons.

After pressing the combinations, your phone will list out commands for you to choose. Take the wipe cache partition or factory reset option. Do note that wiping the cache partition is the easier method and it will not wipe your data.

On the other hand, factory reset will delete the data on your phone. After choosing the wipe partition or factory reset, select ‘reboot device’. Your phone will restart, and if you are lucky, the error will leave.

Remove the Battery If Your Phone’s Battery Is Removable

Another simple way to clear the no command on Android is by removing the battery of your android phone. Before you remove the battery, first switch off the phone. Wait for some time, then put in the battery into the android phone again. Turn your android back on and see if the error is gone or not.

You can only do this if it is permissible for you to remove your android phone’s battery. For android phones tagged, non-removable battery, please, do not attempt to remove the battery. Use other options instead.

Why? Because the phone’s battery connects to some critical parts of the phone. If you try removing it, you may damage those vital parts, and then, there is also the chance of you endangering yourself.

Reboot the system Manually

Installing updates manually works when the “android phone no command”message shows up right after you updated your Android device’s operating system. Do these, to clear the error:

  1. Press and hold down the Volume down keys with the power button at once.
  2. Use the volume keys to navigate through the options the phone listed for you.
  3. Get to apply update from the cache and open it by pressing your phone’s power button.
  4. Choose the available update, install it manually by pressing the power key.
